3Lack of locking mechanism on connector may cause issues with some devices
By Inflight Engineer
I purchased this cable to connect an EVGA GeForce GTX 1050TI FTW video card to a monitor. The connector fits into the DisplayPort on the card just fine, however, because it does not have a locking mechanism like other cables, it was loose and would cause video distortion and "static" if it was moved even slightly. Thinking I had a defective cable, I ordered an exact replacement from Amazon and it had the same problem.

I have returned both and purchased another cable with a locking connector. That one is working fine with no movement of the connector.

Other than the lack of the locking connector, the cables appear to be good quality. The turn screws on the HDMI end of the cable could be a little bit long to make gripping them with your fingers easier.

3Meh, kind of annoying, but does its job
By Sarcasmo
It does its job okay...major quibble, though--the little screw posts are too short and too narrow, and it is extremely aggravating to have to try to unscrew them. You can't a grip on them, and they're so close to the body of the plug, you can't use pliers to loosen it. Major irritating design flaw, along with the non-locking DisplayPort side (which doesn't seem to be standard for these). It's not worth returning it, but I wouldn't buy this again.

5Works great; no latches (& that's good)
By Amazon Customer
This cable works perfectly at a FAR cheaper price than your local tech store; I used 2 of them to setup dual displays.
Some DisplayPort cables use latches to secure the connection and have a disconnect button that needs to be pressed to remove the cable. The DisplayPort side of this cable doesn't use latches, but stays securely in place without them. I actually prefer this, since it means your cable or graphics card connection won't be damaged as easily if someone trips over the cable or you have kids that are at the "let's pull on everything" stage :)
